Rare film glimpse of Amos & Andy
...thought this was hysterical at parts, especially the phone sequence. The haunted house stuff is bland. The duo does have chemistry but for those with sensitive humor buds, especially early black face humor done by white men...STAY AWAY!!!

If you are a fan of Amos 'n Andy's radio show, this is a chance to see the perfect visual representation of the characters. The blackface routine is done in a very tasteful and non offensive manner, and the story follows the typical Amos 'n Andy style. Watch it if you are a fan of good humor.

This movie's storyline is exceptionally bad.
Amos n' Andy...I don't quite know what to say about these two. I can't deny that they have a little chemistry, but they definitely had to offend many people with their comedy back then (and probably today as well). The supporting actors do an almost decent job.
The man that played Amos (Freeman Gosden) said that this movie was the worst movie ever made. I guess this is a good one to see if you want to view a example of historic blackface comedy.
